As a lot of you know one of my favourite places in the whole world is North Devon. We lived there for 12 months a few years ago not long after losing my lovely Mum to Cancer.
The village we lived in was called Appledore and it is a very special place to us. I have even described it before as feeling like this beautiful place wrapped its big green arms around me and gave me huge comfort during a painful time of grief.
We lived in a tiny fisherman's cottage with the most amazing scenery from the back of the house. This is the view from our bedroom window. Every Saturday morning I drank my coffee from my bed and just admired the view. I couldn't help but feel relaxed.
While I was living here I took thousands of photo's and here are a few of my favourites. Walking here was a popular activity and we did it a lot. One of our favourite walks was along the coast and up into some woods that run all along a coastal path. Only a few minutes from our cottage we would pass these abandoned ships as we made our way to the woods. There was something really peaceful about them and even a little eerie as they lay discarded.
My favourite spot along the this stretch of coastline was about ten minutes walk from our cottage. We would walk here most days and every time I sat here the landscape took my breath away and comforted me. North Devon is stunning and a very special place. Our time here totally changed our life.
Do you have a favourite landscape or a place that is really special to you?
